Balsamic Grilled Chicken with Strawberries & Goat Cheese

A finalist in the 2012 Just BARE® Just 5 Cooking Challenge, this grilled chicken recipe comes from Crystal S. of Altoona, WI. Strawberries give it sweetness and the taste of Summer.

Prep Time 
Cook Time 
Total Time 


2 to 3 (14 ounces) Just BARE® Hand-Trimmed Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil


Heat grill to medium-high heat. Place chicken and vinegar in a resealable plastic bag; turn to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Remove chicken from vinegar (discard). Rub chicken with oil; season with salt and pepper. Place on grill; cook about 10 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in center.

Serve chicken topped with strawberries, goat cheese, and basil.


The power of balsamic vinegar is strong when marinating white meat chicken, both in flavor and color. A 30-minute soak is all you need to infuse boneless, skinless breasts with the right amount of lightly sweet tartness to complement the ripe berries and creamy goat cheese.
